Review This Recipe
Great taste & color
Have made this recipe several times and have gotten rave reviews from each audience! The color is beautiful and the taste superb! And it's pretty quick and easy.
I made this for Father's Day and it was good, but I did not care for the dressing called for. I love balsamic vinegar, but the brand of dressing I used just did not cut it. The ingredients in this dish were perfect, maybe next time I will use another type dressing. Will make again.
Will try again
We went to the Farmer's Market this morning, so I added green Bell Pepper to the recipe. Plated on red leaf lettuce and had wedges of tomato around the border. We could have been eating at a restaurant. Loved it. My husband said to fix it again.
Quick and Easy Pasta Salad
I brought this to a family BBQ and everyone liked it. It's made without mayo and takes no time to make. This would also make a light lunch-to-go. Plan to make it again.
ooooh so yummy!
this was so easy to make because i usually can't even boil water. and when i tossed everything together, i came out just perfect and yummy!!
